2007 Ozone Caribbean XC Challenge
Feb 4th - Feb 10th

After the great success of the 2004 Pre-World Cup and 2006 Caribbean XC Challenge in the Dominican Republic, the people promoting our tropical paradise as a world-class paragliding destination, Caribbean Free Flying, are once again bringing you a unique opportunity to come and fly in awesome scenery with the perfect excuse: a paragliding XC competition aimed both at expert and novice cross country pilots, sponsored by Ozone Gliders.

Few rules and plenty of freedom... No tasks, no start windows, no goal lines... just you, your glider, the mountains and the gorgeous Caribbean sky!

It is an open format distance competition, allowing pilots to choose their route as they fly. Competitors arrive at takeoff, decide when to go, where to fly to and when to land...

Local PG Association supporting the Organization

Once again, XC guru Jocky Sanderson will bring his expert advice and coaching to help you maximize the fun and safety of your XC route.

Julian Molina, the mastermind behind the Challenge, believes that this format allows competitors to make the best out of the flying conditions for any given day, and encourages them to fly at their own pace and within the safety margins of their skill. Everyone loved the free flying format and scoring system in 2006, therefore we will be using the same in 2007.

The comp starts 4th February 2007 for a whole week of the best XC flying. Transportation and accommodation are included in the registration fee as well as breakfast, lunch bags and much more!

You will find all the info regarding the event on the rest of the pages in this web site; so take a minute to surf around. Registration is open and the number of competitors is limited to 100 so begin planning your winter flying trip now!
